I could tell the horizon is just a tiny bit off even with the small photo The shot is pretty good, but I noticed with the large version, the photo seems a little soft. I don't know if that's Flickr's problem or what, but it could definitely be a little sharper. I also probably would've used a little tighter shot...since although the rule of thirds works with the sky-to-ground ratio, the placement of the car is still kinda in the middle of the frame. Usually when I do a full front or full rear shot, I use a pretty tight crop.

Decent locations, but I would rather have more sky than more road usually. Also, your car is still way too close to the edges of the frame...it's not quite at rule of thirds, which makes the photo unbalanced. Otherwise, looks good!

Thanks, it really means a lot to me coming from you, the best part is that I haven't really shot in 2 years. I shoot with a Canon but borrowed a Nikon. The action shots aren't that great, because I didn't have a monopod, so there is no blur. But here you go.














I know some are a bit over saturated, but I wanted to pull as much color as possible out of them, I need to use the lift and stamp function more often...
I can't wait to get another 40d ...

^The Honda shots... Yes, very nice.

The Subaru shots... I feel as though there's too much detail lost by trying to light a black car at night. Part of what makes shots of black cars work in daylight are the reflections which allow the viewer to see the shape of the car. Here, it's just a black hole where a car should be.

You've lit it quite a bit, but I feel like it's still lacking punch. Black cars just don't work well for shooting at night.

My $.02. Feel free to throw the extra $0.98 away.

I'm curious I have a Canon S3 IS and I have the filter adapter with a UV and CPL filter attached to it.

Any one with some good tips related to this type of camera? The manual mode on it sucks @#$%! But the rest of it is nice.

Macro on it is rather good. I use a monopod from time to time for those odd shots and at sporting type events.

I want to build a rig with some servos on it to push the shutter button so I can put it on a pole and get those nice high high angle shots but finding a good donor toy is not that easy, lol. I have many that could work but then again getting to work right has been a pain in the butt.

Pretty good, but yeah the shutter speed is too fast so it doesn't look like the cars are moving. You don't need a monopod though...just need to practice panning. I don't have a monopod myself, and still have never really found a use for one with what I shoot.

I'm not really feeling the composition on this. I'd definitely find the car more interesting than the dirty garage wall, but there's more of that than the car. I'd also probably want to see a little more exposure on the front of the car itself.

I gotta agree with NewsPhotog here, especially in regards to shooting a black car at night. The S2K shots are decent, but they're all a bit centered and look almost a little overprocessed. Did you try to HDR these?

I very much believe you can still take good shots with this camera, even if the manual mode kinda sucks. You'll obviously be limited by the lack of control of shutter speed and aperture, but that doesn't mean you can't do good compositions with it. I often find that when I have my camera hardware as a limiting factor, I try to get more creative with my photography. This means trying to use very low or very high angles, making use of the macro mode you mentioned, or simply trying to do things that you normally couldn't do with a big DSLR due to size alone.

Nice subject matter Dre...I would probably get just a little lower on the first shot so that you're not cutting off the bottom of the bumper and splitter. I might also try to back up a little and get the wheel in the shot as well. The second shot looks like an ordinary standing eye-level snap shot...I'd get low on this one as well or try to get really high so you can get a nice wide shot with the Ferraris in the background as well.

Thanks for the tips. I didn't have the wide angle lens avalible at the time and there was a car right behind me.

I think it might be the combination of sharpening and contrast that make it pop a little too much to me. What amount of unsharp mask are you using?
